ABOUT

Classically trained bassist that doubles on upright bass and electric bass across all music styles. Recordings with Universal / Motown and Sony Records on bass. Toured with opera companies for 8 years. One tour with Vienna Boys Choir in Europe and several audition invites to symphonies as well as jazz groups.

Played in contemporary bands for 40 years across all generations and styles. Currently perform in a guitar / voice duet that features my violinist who toured with Page and Plant as well as Eric Clapton. I sing lead vocals while playing guitar. Our range includes Marvin Gay to John Lennon to Stone Temple Pilots to Movie themes and more.

Looking for a professional group that is serious about needing a ringer for bass / voice / guitar as well as any string bass sub work in symphony orchestras. I know all the classical literature (or should I say try to know) and have performed in front of 10,000 people.

I can provide some samples if needed.
